    You can download the survey results from this survey (and all of their previous surveys) here: https://github.com/walterhickey/dem-primary-2020 . These results largely align with other recent surveys.

    In every age group studied, a plurality agreed that Trump should be removed from office. And indeed, three of the age groups contained a majority of voters who believed that Trump should be removed from office.

    The fact that the youngest age group overwhelmingly supports the removal of Trump suggests that the near term future of the GOP - assuming that they do as expected and shield Trump from further evidence before acquittal - are in some very dire straits.

    People aged 18-29 have a very limited view, in general. At least half of them are probably still dependent on their parents. When they were coming of age to vote, we were electing Obama and ushering in a new era of political toxicity, divisiveness, entitlement, apologizing for America's greatness, re-writing history, and turning the media into a propaganda machine. They don't know a better way.

    What is the average life expectancy in the US? 75ish? 80ish? What percentage of voters are made up of the 18-29 demographic?

    I don't think we're going to see the decline of America and the decline of the GOP nearly as fast as the left hopes.

    And there is still a slim chance we can turn around the education system and the media, so future young people won't be such lazy entitled brainwashed bots.

    Besides, what is the saying? If you're young and you're not a liberal, you don't have a heart, but when you grow up if you're not conservative, you don't have a brain. These young people, hopefully, may yet grow to be responsible conservatives adults....

    The dumb young grow up eventually and become Republicans because they finally realize they can make money.

    Setting aside the fact that the data proves early political beliefs (after they have become of age to vote) significantly influence later political beliefs, you still can't run from the fact that a plurality of every age group believes Trump should be removed from office.
    • Among Americans aged 18-29, 63% said Trump should be removed from office, compared to 24% who think he shouldn't be, and 13% who didn't know.
    • For Americans aged 30-44, 56% said Trump should be removed from office in contrast with 28% who think he should not be removed, and 15.8% who don't know.
    • Among those aged 45-60, 47.6% think that Trump should be removed from office compared to 42% who think he should not be removed, and 10% who don't know.
    • For Americans aged 60 and older, a narrow majority of 51% believed Trump should be removed from office in contrast to 40% who think he should not be removed, and 8% who don't know.

    It is true that age groups tend to shift more conservative as they age, but it is also true that early political beliefs - those formed by the time that a person reaches voting age - largely hold throughout their adult life.

    So if the percentages of individuals the youngest generation which are liberal is significantly higher than previous generations (and they are), then that means those beliefs will carry over and persist into the next age of adulthood.

    And I bet 80% of the under 30’s also believe Obama is one of the four faces on Mount Rushmore.

    We can’t look for wisdom from that demographic group.

    But the opinions of the voters that these polls are measuring will decide the make up of the Senate in 2020 and beyond.

    "The majority of millennials would prefer to live in a socialist, communist or fascist nation rather than a capitalistic one, according to a new poll.


    In the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s “Annual Report on U.S. Attitudes Toward Socialism,” 58 percent of the up-and-coming generation opted for one of the three systems, compared to 42 percent who said they were in favor of capitalism.


    The most popular socioeconomic order was socialism, with 44 percent support. Communism and fascism received 7 percent support each."

    Your quote is seriously deficient of any wisdom, logic or truth.

    It's like a similar cooked polling return from last week in which something like eighty percent of Blacks believe that Trump is a racist even though he's never done anything racist. Well, yes, eighty percent of one hundred percent Black Dem Party voters WOULD consider Trump to be a racist as shrieked to them nonstop by a Trump hating and blatantly leftist-allied Mainstream Media. Same here. Most of the young are conditioned in high school and college to be Democrats lest they be considered EVIL by their equally callow and clueless peers. So -- gasp -- most Dem Party voter young believe that Trump should be removed from office. What a shock!

    Devoid of truth? Not to any of us who were liberals in our youth and then moved on.

    You believed in liberty, equality and consent of the governed and now you don't, okay. And you do not know a syllogistic fallacy when you read one, okay, I see.. What are you a monarchist, fascist, Nazi now?.

    1). This is poll from SurveyMonkey through Business Insider. Never heard of SurveyMonkey. Don't know anything about them. As they're not really that well known, this is a major credibility issue. . If this was from someone Post, NYT ABC, Fox, Rasmussen poll etc etc, then there woudl be something to it On top of that, it looks like a for profit polling company. Which means, you could pay them to show you what you want to show.

    2) From the article itself, "On January 22, Insider surveyed 1,070 Americans to ask whether they thought Trump should be impeached and removed from office"
    In the terms of math, 1070 people out of say 200 million people who vote, that is number is so low, it can't be really be counted.

    3) Once this really getting going, and more and more evidence comes to light, watch how fast people minds change.

    Americans under the age of 30 support removing Trump from office by a nearly 3-to-1 ratio

    Your own headline and thread have you forgotten that quickly or are you just angling for things to report now?

    "On January 22, Insider surveyed 1,070 Americans to ask whether they thought Trump should be impeached and removed from office."

    Ok so only 3%. In the grand scheme that is sill insignificant.
